Application Guidelines

Mixing Instructions

N/A Stir or shake the base component to ensure any pigment, which may have settled on the bottom of the can, has been fully incorporated into the base. Do not stir or shake the base component longer than 5 minutes. Slowly add one part by volume of catalyst to one part by volume base component. Mix by hand stirring, paint shaker or mechanical mixing to ensure the base/catalyst mixture is homogeneous. Do not shake or mechanically mix material for longer than 10 minutes. Constant agitation of the material during spray application is recommended.

Note: It is important to condition the paint for 24 hours prior to mixing by placing all materials in the shop or hangar, with ambient temperatures between 13 ºC and 35 ºC (55 ºF to 95 ºF). The minimum temperature of the paint components should be 13 ºC (55 ºF) prior to mixing.

Induction Time

N/A Not required for standard application, however induction time of 30 minutes is recommended for applications requiring faster dry times, such as touch up or cold weather.
